Acne is one of the most common skin conditions in Ireland and it can be much more than just a cosmetic nuisance. Approximately 80% of people experience acne breakouts between the onset of puberty and 30 years of age and it can have considerable physical and psychological effects on a person, leading to low self-esteem and even depression.
In medical terms, acne is a chronic, inflammatory disease of sebaceous follicles, the glands that produce sebum. For many people, the pharmacy will be their first port of call when deciding how to treat acne. The good news is that there are some affordable and effective products on the market today to help you to establish a healthy skincare regime. Hailed as a true game-changer, Cerave face wash SA Smoothing Cleanser has encouraged many users to spread the word on how it has transformed their sensitive and acne prone skin.
The simple appearance of Cerave face wash suggests a science-led approach focusing on the efficacy of the ingredients rather than luxurious packaging and exaggerated marketing. The crucial ingredient in Cerave SA Smoothing Cleanser is salicylic acid, which has long been used to treat oily and congested skin while it also gently exfoliates, unclogs pores and reduces inflammation and redness.
Many dermatologists now specifically recommend Cerave SA Smoothing Cleanser as an acne treatment as it cleanses effectively and removes oil- but without disrupting the skin’s natural protective barrier. Containing three essential ceramides, hyaluronic acid and niacinamide, it also helps soften and smooth the skin, leading to less overall inflammation and as a result, less likelihood of acne scarring.
Cerave SA Smoothing Cleanser is often recommended alongside Cerave SA Smoothing Cream and the excellent value price point is an added bonus. Both products are ideal for teenage breakouts on both face and body and are simple and easy to use. They can help to establish an effective and reliable skincare routine when used together but as with most products, it may take 6-8 weeks to see visible results.
